Profile 2003 - Shelton Bynum (DT/OL)
One would be hard pressed to find a bigger offensive line in high school than the one that Cedar Grove put on the field last year. Marcus McNeil (6-8/340) and Jonathan Palmer (6-5/300) both signed with Auburn in February, but Shelton Bynum (6-5/307) and Justin Wade (6-2/280) return to anchor the lines. Cedar Grove has size in the trenches that many division 1 schools would be envious of. While they lost 2 big 300 pounders, they still return 2 more.
For his part, Bynum plays both the offensive and defensive lines, but he definitely has a preference. "I like to play defense," said Bynum. "I like the aggressive nature of the defensive side of the ball. We've already started practice, and I'm looking forward to getting back out there. We were pretty stacked last year," said Bynum with a laugh, "but we'll be pretty good this year too."
Bynum attended summer camps with Georgia and Middle Tennessee State. "Those are the 2 camps I went to. I've gotten early offers from Kansas, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Maryland. My favorite teams though are Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, and Auburn."
